DIMEQ has developed a breakthrough technology that gives multiple advantages and enables real-time positioning of personnel in a steel environment in a way that has never been seen before, reports Ship Technology.
DIMEQ is a technology based on the west coast of Norway, who work to bring the new era of digital HSE and influence the maritime industry with their breakthrough technology.
The advantages of this technology open a new world for digitalizing maritime HSE never possible in the past.
- It will create a more safe, secure and reliable working environment for maritime crew in all types of vessels and ships. It will prevent and/or minimize MOB (man overboard) situations to end in fatalities or severe injuries.
- It will assist during all other emergency situations by providing improved awareness and information on the bridge, allowing senior staff to manage their officers and situations more effectively, quickly and easily than old methods.
- It also provides integration to third-party systems and integration towards IoT.
Their wristbands can function as key and restrict areas for unauthorized users. It can function as a payment method for cruise ships and other public embarkations.
Users are safer and won’t be forgotten if they fall overboard, are lost in a fire or unconscious. They give bridge and officers a full view of personnel onboard during alarms, and if there are any issues they can be assisted.
It’s just about getting to the muster station
The bridge will see who is on the muster station and who is missing, while any crew members that are in the wrong muster will receive a message directing them to their right position.
Fire alarms or blackouts are all controlled and the technology will support the teams and bridge to ensure better performance during alarms. We know for a fact that things at sea can get horrific, and acting a few seconds faster can be the difference between life and death.
Mobile based technology
The technology can also be controlled from a mobile app, where you can see your loved ones from your phone and control their payments and other parameters if needed – similar to the user experience on a cruise ship.
They focus on safety as our priority, but the breakthrough technology also allows us to enhance user experience onboard cruise ships, with several useful functions in our first version of the wristband called EyeD-1.
Cruise passengers can enjoy shopping, casinos, drinking at the swimming pool, and so many other life experiences with no worries using our wristbands.
Further versions like our EyeD-2 will come with an LCD screen and allow two-way communications.
It will also help passengers to find the closest exit from your current position, and in smoky or dark areas where people can find themselves lost with no visibility, the wristband will show the user, via arrows, their closest exit or muster station.
In the last version EyeD-3, this will be our most advanced and personal wearable for our users. It will be our portable personal health assistant, capable of monitoring heart rate, temperature, pressure and more.
Goal to save lives
With that, they will monitor their health via our wristband, and send any emergency they shall experience, directly to the medic’s PC, tablet or phone, so he/she can respond rapidly with efficient action and equipment to save the life of passengers and workers.
Not only are the wristbands state-of-the-art when it comes to sensors and functions, but the size, the design, and performance are far ahead from competitors.
The EyeD-1 can be used for six months non-stop without having to replace the wristband. In normal conditions faced by offshore workers or cruise ships, the wristband has a lifespan of over a year.
The weight and size are small, user-friendly and users won’t notice they have them on, as the main purpose is to wear it 24/7 for their safety.
Embodied in a silicon wrist, our tech will also allow costs to be close to a pair of safety gloves or goggles, so it will not be something you should worry about losing or breaking.
Dedicated QC personal
Clients can decide the areas to be monitored and how intense they want it to be. The sensors are to be installed directly on the power supply (in cabins, corridors, etc.) that they choose.
It’s a plug & play installation, apart from our server and other components that are the base for the sensors and networking. There will be a dedicated personnel for QC the installation, and a support in-situ and remotely for our clients.
A post report and analysis of the emergencies can be submitted to clients per request. We manage, study and analyze the data created by our wristbands, to improve maritime HSE and report it to our clients so they can take action and improve their operations or installations.
